Shri Subhash Chandra shared the story of Salma from Punjab who has dedicated her time to saving and caring for abandoned, hurt and old cows and bulls by making her own home into a Gaushala.

Salma Ji, 33 who has an MA Polytechnic Science, looks after these animals at the cow-shelter she has at her own house itself. In 2007 she found a wounded bull that had been abandoned, she brought it home and nursed it.  She and her family named him ‘Nandi’. Now there are 33 cows and bulls at her shelter that they have found abandoned and hurt on the roads, and given them a new home.

Subhash Ji hailed Salma Ji and her family’s thinking and dedication and said that they have set an example of selfless service. Salma Ji said that often dairy animals are used as machines and as soon as they stop giving milk they are abandoned, “This is a very wrong thing to do. Will we do this to our parents when they grow older?” She uses a part of her father’s and aunt’s pension to care for these animals.
